  • Contribution towards European technological sovereignty, by establishing, maintaining and implementing a strategic R&I roadmap that fosters the European capabilities to design, develop and produce inter-node interconnects.
  • Delivering scalable energy efficient inter-node interconnect for exascale and post exascale supercomputers. The development of European interconnect should prepare the technology for its future uptake and integration in post-exascale supercomputers to be acquired at a later stage by the EuroHPC JU targeting systems incorporating European technologies.
  • A suitable software stack, including configuration, installation and management tools.

The aim is to support the R&I technology development of innovative and competitive European HPC inter-node interconnect technology.

  • Develop a roadmap for European scalable inter-node interconnects targeting HPC exascale and post-exascale systems. The roadmap should take into account the EuroHPC supported work in this area such as the components being developed in the EUROHPC RED-SEA project as well as in the area of processors and accelerators.
  • Develop the inter-node interconnect hardware addressing design, development, testing and tape-out as well as integration in test-beds. The work should foster synergies with the EuroHPC supported work in the area of processors and accelerators.
  • Develop the software, installation, configuration and management tools for the developed interconnect, driven by the needs of relevant HPC workflows and application requirements.
  • Address issues like high bandwidth, low latency, power efficiency, virtualisation, scalability, reliability, security, etc.

Proposals should clearly demonstrate that all partners in the consortium have a significant and justified role, including appropriate deliverables under their responsibility which cover the specific contributions of each partner. Due to the specific focus of the action, the consortium is expected to include not more than five partners to ensure an efficient and effective implementation and delivery of the objectives.

The JU considers that a contribution from the JU of up to EUR 30 million, matched by the Participating States with a similar amount, and a duration of 3 years would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nevertheless this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals with another duration or requesting other amounts.

Specific Topic Conditions:

Activities are expected to achieve TRL 8 by the end of the project – see General Annex B. Activities may start at any TRL.
